"Her name is very special," she began. "I had all these names written down and I said, I'm just gonna wait until she's born and decide which one suits her best. And Loretta suits her best and also it's got lovely meaning to it." Lydia continued: "My mum and dad's favourite song is At Last by Etta James, so it is obviously short for Loretta. And also my grandfather is from a place in Italy called Loreto. And so her name is the same as Loreto, but just ends slightly differently."

Explaining the meaning behind her daughter's middle name, Lydia said: "And the Rose came because my middle name is Rose and my grandmother's middle name is Rose as well. So it's a beautiful, unique name and it's also got a lot of meaning to me and my family." How lovely!
